    Take your music for a walk on the weird side!

    Dial in some crazy freaked out madness with the Way Huge Ring Worm; an analog modulator based on old-school synth technology with a new, designed-from-the-ground-up circuit. One twist of the 5-way selector knob takes you through five different waves of low frequency oscillator (LFO) lunacy, adding beautifully bizarre and unpredictable amounts of modulation to your otherwise traditional tone.

    The Depth knob controls intensity, and the Rate knob controls speed of the LFO, while the Blend and Frequency knobs controls the mix of the effect and pitch of the internal oscillator. An expression input allows an expression pedal to take over the function of the Frequency knob.

    Features

    • Based on old school, analog synth technology
    • Five different waves of low frequency oscillator (LFO) lunacy
    • Conjure up beautifully bizarre and unpredictable amounts of lunacy
    • Runs on 18 volts for high headroom and clear performance

    Don't be afraid to explore the depths of the abstract with this looney Way Huge creation. Order now!

    Comments about Way Huge Electronics Ring Worm Ring Modulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I love working with sound textures and adding unexpected jolts of what-the-heck-was-that throughout my playing. This tricked out piece of orange-hued aluminium is exactly what I was looking for.

    You can get a great variety of sounds with the 6 wave forms, I've found uses for most of them, but I especially like the randomer.

    A mandatory feature for me that this has is the ability to control the frequency with an expression pedal (I swear by my Source Audio Dual Expression pedal). Another must for me was the mix control, this one works as they all should, from all to none.

    I have an EHX RingThing on my studio board and while the Ringworm doesn't have all of the features, it also doesn't have the higher price tag and larger footprint.

    I haven't had it long so I can't talk to durability, but will update this review after a bit. I will say that I'm not as worried about the construction as other reviewers. It's light but it is aluminum. To me it seems well made. I would definitely not drive a car over it, but I wouldn't recommend that for any pedal.

    Overall, this is a great pedal and I would recommend it for those in want of a ring mod and can't quite justify the price or size of the RingThing.

    battle of the ring modulators

    By simon levene

    Comments about Way Huge Electronics Ring Worm Ring Modulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I first bought the MoogerFooger Ring Modulator but at the time I thought the price was not worth the fact that this is not a work-horse pedal that you will use all the time. I wanted something different to add textures and interest for recordings. I decided that at half the price of the Moogerfooger I'd try the Way Huge Ringworm instead. I have to be honest and say there is a big difference in the quality and usability of the two pedals. Ultimately I made a mistake and should have stuck with the Moog version.

    I was hard pressed to notice much difference with the width control. The rate control has more obvious scope but is not as accurate or easy to use as on the Moogerfooger. I am not sure why these two knobs are very small compared to the oversized blend and frequency knobs.

    However, I do like the blend control. I find that more usable than the mix control on the Moogerfooger.

    I need to spend more time with this pedal as it is clear that you have to get to know the nuances of Ring Modulators to wring the best sounds out of them. My first impression is that this is only one step up from a gimmick sound effect.
    Appears well constructed. Output sound quality is reasonable but sounds a little "tinny". Footswitch is very stiff and is noisy when switched on or off.
    Much cheaper than other ring modulators. Value depends on what you are going to use it for and how much use you'll get out of it. I shouldn't have been so cheap and returned the Moogerfooger MF102. In retrospect, it was worth almost twice the price.

    Sounds cool. Cheap quality?

    Comments about Way Huge Electronics Ring Worm Ring Modulator Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is a cool, oddball pedal to have in your "spice rack" as I do but as mentioned above, consider the construction of Dunlop's newer pedals. I didn't compare this in person to an EH Ring Thing, which is another newer Ring Modulator offering on the market, but maybe you should if you're considering purchasing one. I may give this a higher rating if it were built better but a "6" is about right at this time.

    I would like to add that Dunlop's customer service has always been top notch. A human being answers the phone and many of their employees / techs are accessible if you need to speak with someone. Kudos for that.
    I'm no aficionado when it comes to ring modulators but you might be hard pressed to find someone who is as these are certainly the "black sheep" of effects pedals. The controls are all very useful and if you can dial in the proper carrier signal for the key you're playing in some pretty rad sounds can be made. Your choice of pickups can make a large difference as well. Single Coils / P90s / Humbuckers yeild different tones out of this pedal.
    Ugh. This is where my bone to pick lies. I've owned and used this pedal since the first run of them were made available and nothing has physically broken with it, but so many of the newer Dunlop pedals are being made much more cheaply than in the past. The Ringworm is no exception- a featherweight housing, a featherweight power supply (included), and a stomp switch that sounds and feels like it'll begin having issues sooner rather than later. I do not know how the original Way Huge pedals were constructed but after owning many Dunlop pedals over the years, including a couple of newer ones, I think I'm steering clear of them going forward unless they start building them like they used to.
